    It's a win and it stopped the bleeding. I expect that we'll play well against Philly. We tend to play to the level of the competition. Halladay went today and Oswalt is hurt so I'm guessing we get Lee, Hammels and Blanton. I think we can get two of three, if not all three, with a clutch hit or two. Philly's offense isn't what it's been in years past.

    Yeah, I agree. The biggest key is Beckett. If he doesn't show any holdover from his illness, I think we're in good shape there. Lackey is ticked off enough to want to pitch a decent game (gulp), and then there's Lester.

    Based on ESPN, the Philly matchups are:

    Tu - Beckett vs. Lee
    W - Lackey vs.Worley
    Th - Lester vs. Kendrick

    I like those matchups. Get past game one with a win, and who knows what could happen?

    Doesn't sound like Charlie Manuel would lineup that way agasint the Sox.  I expect at the least Lee and Hamels.  Haladay just threw a complete game today, so missed him by a day.  Without him, Hamels should pitch in place of Kendrick.

    That will be 2 lefties, that too premier lefties, against the Sox.  As long as Sox can win at least 1, that will be sweet.  Of course, rooting for Sox sweeping the Phillies.

    More yeoman comedy by softy; the Koufax reference, cracks about the 5 hole, and bunt plays were precious.
